Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2012!  Any goals for the year?  Resolutions?

My reading goal for 2012 is to read 50 books for pleasure.  In 2011 I read 45, so 50 books seems like a reasonable goal.  Here are some more of my 2011 reading stats:

  • 14,687 pages read (according to Goodreads)
  • Longest book = The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, 688 pages
  • 4 audiobooks
  • 14 new series started
  • 19 never-before-read authors
  • Breakdown of my ratings:
    • 6 books = 5 Stars
    • 10 books = 4.5 Stars
    • 15 books = 4 Stars
    • 7 books = 3.5 Stars
    • 6 books = 3 Stars
    • 1 book = 2.5 Stars

In 2011, I tried an audiobook for the first time, I read chick lit for the first time, and I didn’t rate anything below a 2.5.  Overall, a pretty good reading year!

I leave you with a trailer for the second season of Sherlock, which premieres in the UK today!  I am so excited!  What a better way to start the new year than with an awesome detective story?  More trailers can be found here.
